I am trying to use ACT to track different candidates we are recruiting for. How to use groups/sub groups and user fields to categorize people's skills? We need to track the # of years of experience as well as specific skill sets and specific domain experience. For example, the candidate has 3 yrs in java, 2yrs in C, 1 year in Oracle; 4 yrs in development; 1 yr in testing; 5 yrs in private sector, 1 yr in federal government, 2 yrs in state goernent.
If we use user field 1 as skills, we can only select 1 from the drop down list, not multiple.
What is the best way to set up the database so that it is easier to search
Thanks in advance.

This is a common dilemma
I would create a custom tab for experience/skills
Create custom fields for each skill you want to track and make it a number.
This will allow you to search if someone has a skill or a certain number of years in a skill.
A little clunky admittedly but it will work.
